Organizing The Data
By scrolling to the bottom of the Analysts’ Ratings page, you can see there are more than 4,700 pieces of analyst information on various stocks. You are able to browse the list as presented – ranked by date and time.
You can also change the ranking by clicking on any column head or you can use the search box at the top right to select by analyst or by stock ticker.
From the Analysts’ Ratings page, click on the name of a single analyst to get more information on that analyst.
For example: Click on Citi to see the breakdown for Citi analysts.
At the top of the page there will be a quick breakdown of Ratings and Price Targets. This information can help you understand how well that particular analyst is performing. Two important areas include Ratings Accuracy and Price Target Accuracy.
As of this writing, for example, with Citi, overall Ratings Accuracy is just 23.09% and overall Price Target Accuracy is 57.85%.
Those numbers compare with Ratings Weight and Price Target Weight respectively, which are adjusted to some extent by accuracy percentages and number of days covered by those particular analysts.
For Citi, the Ratings Weight of 36.04%, which is higher than the 23.09% Ratings Accuracy reflects the large number of ratings days. The Price Target Weight of 62.96% is also higher than Price Target Accuracy and also reflects the high number of Price Target Days for which there is data.
Below Ratings and Price Targets appears a table of all the different stocks for which the analyst has issued a rating and/or price target.
After the Stock ticker column, the next two, Info and Actions are standard for Woo Trader and provide the same data found on the Daily Rankings page.
